making my home a home, again.

At times life spoils me rotten, this time I needed it the most. Lovely mail from Shannah (daskaninchen) and Ibabe! New chair! It was Shannah's colourful treasures that sealed my decision to go buy it after having walked past it way too many times with longing in my eyes (okay, so I bought the chair the day I first saw it, but I did walk past it several times and wanted to take it home with me, but ignored the temptation until opening Shannah's parcel). I love the quirky proportions and the scruffy red paint. It's perfect next to my book cupboard. Now at least 1½m2 of my ~28m2 are pretty much perfect. (I have no idea what to do with the rest!)

At home, with flowers, books, movies, notebooks. I do have the ugliest wallpaper ever. (If you think it's not too bad, try living with it for a while.) On the wall yet another dictionary project, unfinished, nearly forgotten.

The longest day. I'm having trouble sleeping again, because of the light this time. Somehow it's less irritating now.

Something I made for V.

returning home

Reading, writing, travelling. Writing has been pretty fantastic lately, nothing makes me happier. Still, I hope it's time to get back to bookmaking too. 

(I wish those were my windows. I was walking home from the railway station when I had to stop and take some photos. It was past 11pm, but you could hardly tell. These buildings, this light and colour make this town my town. At least for now.)
